Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Susan with Digital Tutors and this is your first date with Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS. In this course, we'll learn everything you need to know to be able to write CSS from scratch, such as creating and attaching style sheets to our HTML file, so that they affect our HTML. We'll learn basic CSS syntax and some common properties that allow us to change the color of our text, manipulate the width of images, and add borders and change the background color of our page. We'll also learn some really important concepts, like how to keep our files organized by using comments and grouping selectors, understanding the cascade and validating our code to check for some common errors. We'll get started in our next lesson by previewing the project we'll be building and going over the existing HTML.
